Stewart's Quotable Africa by Julia Stewart
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The African continent has been home to spectacularly eloquent human beings - rebellious anti-colonial leaders and anti-apartheid activists, comical geniuses, pensive and philosophical authors and intellectuals, raving dictators. Africa's body of proverbial wisdom alone could fill many volumes. Africa is eminently quotable, yet not so readily quoted. Quotable Africa, with over 5 000 entries of quotes by Africans and about Africa, is a resource title of substance, and is long overdue. Quotable Africa covers the whole of the Africa continent - from north to south and east to west - and includes memorable words from people like Kofi Annan, Miriam Makeba, VS Naipaul, Paul Theroux, Ernest Hemingway, among thousands of others.
